Simple treat for Memorial Day....

Are you ready for Memorial Day? Looking for a FUN treat!! Try these!!

Red, White and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
1 pint fresh strawberries (approx 12 oz)
4-oz white chocolate
......Blue sanding sugar or sprinkles
Line a baking sheet or cutting board with wax paper or parchment paper.
Chop up the chocolate roughly with a knife if it is in block form. In a medium-sized, microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave. Heat it in 45 or 60-second intervals, stirring between each time to ensure that the chocolate is melting evenly and not burning. Meanwhile, place blue sanding sugar into a small bowl and set it aside.
When chocolate is smooth, dip the berries 3/4 of the way into the chocolate, dip the tips into the blue sprinkles, and place on wax paper.
Berries can set at room temperature if you live somewhere cool, otherwise refrigerate them until ready to serve to allow the chocolate to set up.
A fellow Willow House Consultant posted these on Facebook, and I just had to share with y'all!!!

Those are too cute Suzanne, I've got strawberries in the frig this morning for when the "belles" get up but I don't think I'll have time to dip them in chocolate. Have a safe weekend.
